(Fall 2012, Spring 2013, Summer 2013) 


2012-13 Verification Worksheet for Independent Students  (pdf)

If you are an INDEPENDENT student and the Department of Education selected your 2012-13 FAFSA to be verified, you must complete this worksheet and return it to the Financial Aid Office along with your *SIGNED 2011 TAX RETURN TRANSCRIPT (if you filed) and your 2011 W-2 Form(s). If you are married, you must also submit your spouse's *SIGNED 2011 TAX RETURN TRANSCRIPT (if filed separately) and their 2011 W-2 Form(s). If additional verification paperwork needs to be collected the financial aid staff will contact you.


*NEW FOR 2012-13: To obtain an IRS tax return transcript, go to and click on the “Order a Return or Account Transcript” link, or call 1-800-908-9946. Make sure to request the “IRS tax return transcript” and not the “IRS tax account transcript.” It takes up to two weeks for IRS income information to be available for electronic IRS tax return filers, and up to eight weeks for paper IRS tax return filers.
